This guide takes you in-depth on the real vs fake Vlone Air Force 1.

In this guide, we’ll compare them and tell you how to spot fakes.

Simple as that. Let’s go and legit check these Air Forces!

How to spot fake Air Force 1 Vlone

The quickest and most straightforward way to identify fake Air Force 1 Vlone is by examining the tongue tag.

Authentic Air Force 1 Vlone should have the Nike logo on the tongue, not the Vlone logo.

1. Tongue

  • Authentic:
    • Tongue tag displays the Nike AIR printed logo, no Vlone logo present.
  • Fake:
    • Often have the Vlone logo on the tongue.

2. Swoosh

  • Authentic:
    • Swoosh logo is strictly curved where it’s supposed to be, not overly rounded.
  • Fake:
    • Nike Swoosh logo appears too curvy and rounded compared to the authentic version.

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

3. Shape

  • Authentic:
    • Overall shape is not excessively curvy, as outlined by a green line in the comparison image.
  • Fake:
    • Exhibit a too curvy overall shape and heel bump, as indicated by a red line in the image.

4. Back

Over here, we have Vlone‘s logo.

  • Authentic:
    • Rear “V” logo appears thinner as pointed out in the comparison image.
  • Fake:
    • “V” rear logo looks thicker than on the authentic sneakers.

5. Side text

  • Authentic:
    • Text is placed higher and proportionally sized on the sneaker.
  • Fake:
    • Text is positioned too low and appears smaller than on authentic Air Force 1 Vlone sneakers.

Authenticity checklist

  1. Check the Tongue Tag: Examine the tongue tag of your Vlone AF1s. Fake AF1 pairs often have the Vlone logo printed on the tongue instead of the Nike AIR text.
  2. Inspect the Nike Swoosh Logo: Look at the Nike Swoosh logo on the side of your Vlone Air Force 1. Fake Vlone Air Force 1 sneakers may have a Swoosh that is overly curvy.
  3. Examine the Heel Bump: Check the heel bump of your sneakers. Counterfeit Vlone Air Force 1s may have a heel bump that is too curvy.
  4. Rear Heel “V” Vlone Logo: Look at the rear heel “V” Vlone logo. Fake Air Force 1 Vlone shoes often have a “V” that appears too thick.
  5. Verify the Text Above the Midsoles: Examine the text above the midsoles, on the side of your shoes. Fake AF1 Vlone sneakers may have text that is placed too low and appears too small.

This quick guide should help you make a faster assessment.
